"We are proud to partner with the United Nations to provide critical technology that will protect and assist our United Nations peace keeping personnel" said Anthony LaSure, president and CEO of PPI. "This award is a great example of the innovative solutions offered by an American company to provide a value added solution that will ultimately save lives."

PPI submitted its proposal in October 2016 and entered a competitive United Nations Procurement evaluation process.  The thorough evaluation process included review of technical and quality requirements specified in the solicitation, financial and commercial requirements against prevailing market conditions, and full supplier evaluation.  PPI was approved for the award by the United Nations Headquarters Committee on Contracts.  Notification to PPI was made on September 25, 2017.  PPI is now in the final stages of contract negotiation for mutually agreeable terms and conditions to provide service to the United Nations.

"Pentagon Performance is at the forefront of the rapidly developing UAS industry and we're excited that they selected Millville Executive Airport to be their base of operations," said Thomas Cook, Executive Director of the DRBA.  "PPI's contract with the United Nations is expected to create more than 20 high tech and administrative jobs at the Millville facility and their increasing footprint in the UAS industry sets the stage for the Millville Airport and the South Jersey region to become a hub for UAS innovation and manufacturing."

Headquartered in Millville, New Jersey, PPI has partnered with the Delaware River and Bay Authority, the Cumberland/Salem/Cape May Workforce Development Board, and Cumberland County Economic Development to help grow the UAS industry at the Millville Airport. PPI's contract with the United Nations accelerates PPI growth and will create an immediate need for high-tech and administrative support jobs throughout the South Jersey area.   PPI is a rapidly growing registered minority owned Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), certified Veteran Owned Business (VOB), and Small Business Enterprise (SBE).
